Ascent Trip Report

From the PA at Silver-Grizzly at 430am we started up towards the Recloud saddle. We continued on to the left along the saddle and sidehilled around a minor point to its right before crossing a saddle and and hiking across towards the peak. From the summit we followed the ridge down to a minor point passing around it to the left on a use trail. We regained the ridge and followed it down to a saddle and up the ridge to 13811. We mostly followed our route back to the Redcloud saddle. There were a few bits of trail that skirt the summit and is easy to follow for the most part. This trail covers a lot of ground and the hiking is good but long. Lots of interesting avalanche debris along the first two miles of trail exemplifies the true power of such phenomena and is viscerally gripping. All avalanche debris is easily avoided or cleared.
